SmartPM’s New User Dashboard Enhances Ability to Track Construction Project Progress
Atlanta, Georgia – May 20, 2021
ATLANTA, May 20, 2021 – SmartPM Technologies is pleased to announce key enhancements to its product, SmartPM, a project controls platform for construction scheduling analytics. New user-friendly dashboard features make tracking the health and success of construction projects easier for all stakeholders of a construction project to see and understand.
“Deep understanding of schedule data on each construction project is critical for our industry to improve, and we are quickly accelerating access to it through our elaborate SaaS tool to give access to many different project participants in order to help them be successful in their particular role,” said Michael Pink, founder and CEO of SmartPM Technologies, who has over 18 years of consulting as a construction industry analytics expert. “Schedule data is the most powerful data in construction, it just needs to be presented in a manner that makes sense. We believe our new dashboard can offer more intelligent data on how the construction project is progressing in a format that’s easy for all stakeholders to grasp and make decisions.”
Highlights of the SmartPM dashboard enhancements include:
A newly introduced project health metric. This metric is weighted based on the schedule performance, compression and quality, and acts as a risk indicator that allows users to easily identify which projects are most at risk and need immediate attention.
An independent schedule-quality checker. This new feature enables users to load a schedule into SmartPM and immediately verify its quality prior to incorporating it into a project.
A reordering of dashboard metrics. This provides for greater clarity in accessing data and a more intuitive user experience.
Clients, like MCP Group, are noticing big improvements in how quickly SmartPM allows them to track problem spots. During a recent webinar, Pat Tolin, CEO of MCP Group shared with attendees that, “We are beyond pleased with SmartPM. In 2020, due to the pandemic, every job was behind or scheduled late. But when we realized what SmartPM could do, COO Greg Stueve and I were able to analyze all of our schedules and easily locate where the problems lie. Our project managers and superintendents have fully embraced SmartPM and cost-wise SmartPM has not only paid for itself on every project –it’s put dollars on our bottom line”.
SmartPM Technologies, named on the Top 21 Startups to Watch in 2021 list in Atlanta Business Chronicle last month, is on a fast-moving growth trajectory. Last year the company grew its customer base by 250%, closed another round of seed funding ($785K), tripled its sales revenue, and had its greatest customer gains in Dec. 2020. Additionally, they have hired a number of new employees in 2021 and continue to hire.
